Chargers Drop Tweet Of The Year Candidate Amid London Relocation Rumors

Both the Oakland Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers are coming off of big wins against NFC playoff contenders, as the Raiders defeated the Detroit Lions in an offensive shootout, while the Chargers defeated Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.

The Chargers moved to Los Angeles for the 2017 season and play at Dignity Health Sports Park.

Spanos was quoted in the initial article as saying the Chargers are "fully committed and focused" to Los Angeles, but his subsequent reaction was stronger and far more colorful.

In case missed it, The Athletic's Vincent Bonsignore on Monday reported that the Chargers and the National Football League are mulling over possibly moving the franchise from Los Angeles to London.

If that wasn't convincing enough, perhaps Chargers owner Dean Spanos calling the report "total f-ing bulls-t" will be.

The NFL has long eyed overseas expansion and played a slate of four games in London during the 2019 season.

The statement read: "No consideration has been given to the Chargers playing anywhere other than Los Angeles at the new stadium in Hollywood Park next season and beyond".

Citing league sources, Bonsignore reported that there has been talk from league officials of moving the Bolts to London and possibly making their home at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The NFL and the Chargers were responding to a report from The Athletic that officials could look to move the team due to their struggles with fans in the Los Angeles market. The team also reportedly has a pair of exclusive 10-year options to extend the lease.

The Chargers' struggles in L.A. continue to be exacerbated by periodic reports that they won't be staying in L.A. for very long. Jaguars owner Shad Khan also own Fulham. "We're not going to London", Spanos said Monday.
